 Zeke is 120 yards away from 1,000 for the season.

Thomas played against the Falcons after cropping up on the injury report, but he was in on just 63% of the snaps, suggesting that his hamstring may have been bothering him. The Saints still need a victory to secure the NFC South, and there were no reports of any setbacks, so expect Thomas to be out there on Sunday against the Bucs. Tampa Bay allows the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, so absent reports that he will be limited again, Thomas makes an excellent option in Week 17.Elliott played extremely well against the Seahawks, gaining 118 total yards on 28 touches. He could have had a huge day had the Cowboys not inexplicably gone away from the run near the goal-line several times. The Eagles are extremely tough on opposing running backs, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position. But with the No. 1 seed locked up, they may rest some starters, which would make Elliott an even more enticing option than he usually is. Either way, you're certainly not benching him if you're still playing, and he makes a fine option.

Tampa Bay allows the most points to fantasy receivers, Thomas is a strong WR1 this week.Elliott needs 120 yards to have a 1,000 yard season, Elliott should be a RB1 even though the Cowboys have nothing to play for this week.
